Fire emergencies require specialized staff and equipment. As the fire threats are various and have become more and more dangerous over the centuries, fire truck manufacturers have developed different types of engine to respond to every emergency. The number of firefighters who can be carried on a fire truck differs depending on the type of the engine.
The crew on different types of engines
The fire engine has a unique configuration, specially designed to carry water, fire equipment, and the crew to the fire scene. There are many types of fire engines. While some of them are specially designed to carry water tanks and fewer firefighters, some others can carry up to eight people. The cabin of the fire trucks is divided into two parts: the front seat for driver and captain, and the jump seat area for firefighters. The big engines required in wildfires and other huge fire emergencies must carry at least four firemen.
The jump seat area in fire trucks
Volkan Fire is a specialized fire truck producer, which emphasizes on quality, safety and health regulations altogether. We are an important fire truck producer Turkey, which offers a wide range of fire engines. As we know how important a fire fighter’s job is, are also aware of the fact that more firefighters at a fire scene can lead to a better and quicker result. The jump seat area is the backseat of the cabin which sits back-to-back with the driver and captain. In the majority of fire engines, there are two fold-down seats and in between them, there are several yellow pouches which contain the fire masks and oxygen tubes. Volkan Fire offers fire engines with many seats because we know the risks that come from small crews which try to combat big fires.
